Investment principles

Customers with strong values around issues such as protecting the environment, animal welfare or equality for everyone may not want their savings going to companies or sectors that have business practices that they don’t agree with. Values-based investments offer reassurance and enable them to address those relevant issues.

Studies have shown that sustainable investments generally perform better than similar funds or indices that aren’t focused on ESG factors.

However, investors should be prepared to accept that values-based investments perform differently than conventional funds due to the low exposure or avoidance to certain sectors.
